The amount of information technology in everyday life is increasing and getting more and more ambient in our daily environments. The environments are supposed to be intelligent, adaptive, intuitive, interactive and proactive in the future. User participation for future concept building is essential but challenging when designing appliances that might be unfamiliar in their appearance, functionality and impressiveness compared to the user's current everyday life. New allocated methods and viewpoints are needed for user experience design and evaluation of intelligent environments to build systems that naturally support the users in their daily life. In this paper three methods are presented as tools (role-playing, PC game and physical acting) for early concept definition phase in the area of ambient intelligence and ubiquitous computing.
